Description

This is the complete history of the alleged mob activity in Newport, Kentucky, and the magnificent Beverly Hills Supper Club, where 169 people died and the lives of thousands were changed in an instant. Unlike other publications, however, this is the true untold story of what led to Kentucky's worst tragedy--a story of greed, corruption, deceit, mafia rule, government cover-ups, kidnapping, and even murder. In fact, this book details one of the worst case of mass murder in US history.
